Initial US sales and consumption projections have emerged for Kenny Chesney’s “Songs For The Saints.”
According to Hits Daily Double, the country star’s new album should sell 51-56,000 pure US copies this week. With TEA (track sales/10) and SEA (track sales/1250 for paid services + track sales/3750 for free services), the album should generate 60-65,000 in total opening week consumption.
The pure sales total will likely rank as the week’s best — and thus earn “Songs For The Saints” #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart.
The consumption tally will likely be the best for a new release, but it will not challenge the sum expected of Drake’s “Scorpion.” The Drake album, accordingly, should spend a fifth consecutive week atop the Billboard 200.
